Faculty of Law


Victoria's Law School is proud of its tradition of producing outstanding alumni.

These include the country's only Law Lord, its only Judge of the International Court of Justice, a Prime Minister and many of New Zealand's top judges. Many current judges are distinguished alumni of Victoria Law School.

Alumni also contribute at all levels of the legal profession, the public service, politics and the judiciary.

We encourage alumni to continue their association with the Faculty through our programme of events, our monthly newsletter and our annual year in review, v.alum.

Events for Alumni

The signature event for Victoria's law alumni is the annual Robin Cooke Lecture which is held in the first two weeks of December.

All alumni are invited and the lecture is followed by the Faculty's Christmas Drinks Party.

Throughout the year, the Faculty has a programme of public lectures and seminars, which are organised through its research centres, the NZ Centre of International and Economic Law and the NZ Centre for Public Law.

To receive information about the programme visit the NZCIEL and NZCPL websites.
